Chad Yoder
Producer, Graphics
My Role

I produce news graphics. That means I do all kinds of charts, maps, data organization, design and illustrations for publication in the newspaper and online.

Really, I do a bunch of stuff that my more distant relatives don't really understand when they ask me what I "write" about for the Tribune.
My Biography

I grew up in Indiana, went to college at Ball State University, and spent some time working for a newspaper in south Florida before making my way to the Tribune. Moving from Florida to Chicago in the middle of winter wasn't exactly the smartest thing I've ever done in my life, but I like to think everything worked out pretty well.
My Interests

Reading, reading and more reading, along with some videogaming, movie watching and concert-going for good measure.

Lately I've been gaining interest in comedy and improvisational theater.
